"SDN, Pre-med office at school" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING! Students, faculty, attendings, residents, everyone was there during the luncheon. We had the privilage to eat with many of the faces of NYU and all had great things to say about NYU. Def a top choice for me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities seem a bit old. The lecture halls were downstairs in a basement with the anatomy labs. But this is trivial. I've seen worse at other schools. One has to remember that NYU has a long history and tradition behind it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This interview was my third interview and probably the best. I heard mixed reviews from other interviewees that day. I, personally had an excellent interviewer. Others, claim that they did not have as pleasant of an experience. I guess it all depends on who you get. The big picture: NYU's positives balance out all the very trivial negatives I mentioned. Oh, Btw, It's located in the capital of the world: NYC!" Report Response
